Circle of Life East Anglia provide a bespoke independent celebrant service, offering a wide range of ceremonies to cover every life event.

Ceremonies include Baby Naming’s, Weddings, Civil Partnerships and Renewal of Vows, to a Funeral or Memorial Service where we celebrate or reflect on the life of those taken from us  in a personal and respectful ceremony.

Living near Wisbech, Cambridgeshire and being close to the borders of Lincolnshire and Norfolk I am happy to travel anywhere – East Anglia and beyond!

My aspiration is simple – I want to help you to create a personal, individual and memorable ceremony, whatever the occasion.

Baby Naming

Welcoming bundles of joy into the family!

Naming Ceremonies are a families chance to  welcome a new baby or newly adopted member or step-children into the family circle and friends.

Whether you are religious or not, naming’s can be as formal or informal as you want. As an Independent Celebrant I am not a Humanist and therefore I can include a religious reading if you wish or the ceremony can be totally religion free. The choice is yours. The location is your choice from your home or garden, a local village hall, a  function room in a hotel or a place that is special to your family. How about a family get together whilst camping or caravanning for example? Continue reading “Baby Naming”


Personal, individual and memorable ceremonies

If you want a bespoke and personal ceremony which reflects who you are then Circle of Life East Anglia are who you need.  I write and conduct ceremonies for Marriage, Civil Partnership or Renewal of Vows, working closely with you to achieve the ceremony of your dreams.

Wedding or Civil Partnership Ceremonies

There are several additional options you may consider to incorporate within your ceremony such as hand-fasting which dates back centuries, ‘jumping the broom’ or lighting a unity candle are to name but a few. As you make your choices through the development of your ceremony script, I can guide and advise you of the variety of options available to you. You can even have your beloved family pet(s) attend – we have had ring-bearing dogs and owls at ceremonies before now and brides arriving on their horse!

Respectful, meaningful and appropriate.

Have you ever attended a funeral and sat there thinking to yourself “that’s not the person I have known for x amount of years!”

Unfortunately, so many people go to the funeral of a friend or family member and find it doesn’t remotely resonate with, or reflect the person they knew and loved.

Funerals are the last and final chance we have to say our goodbyes; to honour the person who has died and to pay tribute to them in the most appropriate manner.  It’s one of the hardest things in life that any of us have to do and it’s a crucial part of the grieving process to ensure that the final farewell is exactly right.

Sue Dewing is a caring, friendly, professional Independent UK Celebrant,
conducting ceremonies for Love, Life and Loss.

Independant Celebrant - Sue Dewing

Sue is professionally trained by and a member of the Fellowship of Professional Celebrants.  She can deliver exceptional advice, guidance and support. As a former Registrar of Births, Deaths & Marriages she has extensive knowledge and a wealth of experience of the legal formalities required prior to your wedding ceremony. Having become frustrated at the level of restrictions placed on wedding couples or families wanting to celebrate the arrival of a new-born baby or adopted member of the family within their own home or gardens for example, she wanted to offer so much more freedom of choice.

Sue is not a Humanist Celebrant, she is an Independent one. The difference means that an Independent Celebrant works with you to include anything you want as part of your ceremony, including religious readings and content should you wish.

Sue will guide you along your exciting journey and you can be rest assured you will be in the safest of hands.

We would like to say a huge thank you to Sue for our beautiful wedding service. You made our wedding not only a day we won’t forget but special and emotional service. This was something that was new to us as we haven’t heard of it before. But we are so happy we made the decision to have you. Without any doubt, we would recommend you to everyone.
